“Great Alabama 650” Winners Announced

FORT MORGAN, ALABAMA — We have an overall winner of the Great Alabama 650!  Trey Reaves (Time: 6 days, 1 hour, and 39 minutes) crossed the finish line at Ft. Morgan at 3:30 PM on Friday, October 6th taking both the Overall Winner title and the male solo first-place prize.  

Trey, from Florence, Alabama, is the first Alabamian to win the title and was welcomed by family, crew, and racing staff at the finish line.

He was closely followed by Bobby Johnson (Time: 6 days, 5 hours, and 50 minutes), last year’s winner, and Salli O’Donnell (Time: 6 days, 6 hours, and 40 minutes), who came less than an hour later to claim the female-solo first first-place title.

Bobby Johnson and Salli O’Donnell were the first five-time finishers of the Great Alabama 650 and received the 3250 Achievement Award.  This award pays tribute to the 3250 miles each racer has paddled in the AL650 over the years and commemorates the achievement through an alligator sculpture made of Coosa River clay.
